Every month, your candle comes usually wrapped in a square of fabric, but since December they’ve been sending drawstring bags instead.

Cupid’s arrows for Valentine’s Day!

Each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:

Now, on to the candle!

Wooly Beast Candle in Rose City – Retail Value $17.99?

(The size isn’t listed on the tin, but their 6 oz tin retails for $17.99. I’m not sure if this is the same one, but it has a burn time of 25+ hours.)

This soy candle is perfect for rose lovers – it has a pure, natural rose scent. Unfortunately, I am not the biggest fan of rose scents, so I will be gifting this to someone who will love it. (I’m also impressed that Wooly Beast candles are phthalate-free, so I’m going to check out some of their other scents.


And each Vella Box also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:

Tahoe Flavor Toffee – Sample

This toffee is made with hand roasted almonds and pecans, rich vanilla, milk chocolate and sea salt. It tasted just as good as it looks – my husband, Eric loved it!


Verdict: I’m not sure of the total retail value of this box, but I think the pricing is fair for $12 a month. And I love that there is an inexpensive candle box that works with lots of independent candlemakers! This box feels perfect for February, too. A floral candle + chocolate toffee = Valentine’s Day in a box!

  1. I got a 3 month subscription and I saved 6 so I really got each month for 10. I really loved my last month when they first started adding those cute bags…such a cute touch. The extra treats a sweet too. My issue was that I don’t like Christmas type scents and my 3 months were Nov, Dec, and Jan… I would of loved the 🌹…. This month you guys scored with a 6oz candle…normally it’s a 4oz. I like this box..I hope it sticks around because I probably will sign up again in future. Great review Liz, and oh man that treat looks so yummy.

  2. I am obsessed with candles. I have them all over my house.. I had to designate a cabinet just for my candles & my boyfriend thinks I’m crazy lol.. when I saw this, I went crazy because I had no clue that there was a candle subscription box and at such an affordable price! I love that there are 3 kinds of subs that can fit any budget (especially since I get 10-12 other boxes lol) This is my first month and decided to sign up for the Lucerna ($10 a month) for now to try it out and wasn’t expecting much but I LOVE this… I received this yesterday and the first thing I noticed was that the drawstring bag is very good quality, and the little surprise gift they put in was great too! (Hoping for more skincare items) the info card was stuck onto the inside of the box, so good thing I pulled it off because it really helps with describing the candle and snack. I am definetly not a fan of rose scented candles but I assumed that because of Valentine’s Day that I was bound to get a rose scented something lol either way, the size is perfect and the $12 you pay ($10 plus $2 shipping) is 100% worth it if you like candles…. I’ll stick with the Lucerna for a few months and possibly upgrade to the next level up. If you are on the fence, go for it.

  3. That toffee looks amazing!

    • I can fully attest that toffee WAS amazing….
